handshakepicHana Le, a biology and creative writing junior, studied abroad on the Geography of the European Union education abroad program during May 2019. 

The Geography of the European Union study abroad program was a month-long trip to the gorgeous island of Cyprus. We attended classes with Stavros, our resident director, in the morning and spent our afternoons and weekends exploring our city, Paphos. During our stay, we also travelled to the capital, Nicosia, and another nearby city, Limassol. Our study abroad was particularly special because Stavros is a native Cypriot; I learned so much from him about the culture of Cyprus. When we weren't studying, our little family laid out on the beach together or tried new restaurants. The food was spectacular. None of us can stop talking about how much we miss it!
